About Grammarly: An Automated Writing Feedback Tool

Create an Account      Log In to Grammarly


Walden University's Writing Center provides premium Grammarly accounts to all current Walden University students at no additional cost.

Grammarly is a third-party, automated grammar, proofreading, and writing revision tool for academic writing, and the company that created and maintains it is not affiliated with Walden University. 

Grammarly will not fix your writing for you; it is up to you to incorporate Grammarly's feedback and decide what suggestions are most appropriate. For a more comprehensive paper review, consider making a paper review appointment with a writing instructor.


Getting Started With Grammarly

First-time Grammarly users should go to Grammarly's Create Your Account page to sign up for an account (Grammarly will accept accounts as well as accounts).

Once you have created an account, you can log in at Grammarly's homepage or use the Grammarly App within Microsoft Word. Bookmark this login page for future access to the website.
